hey ya’ll! we’ve got topics for a few different genres/kinds of music, but I figured we could use a catchall topic for the music of 2017. there’s an unfathomable amount of stuff released constantly, and I know I personally find it exceptionally hard to keep up. I think one of the best ways to do so is see what other people are listening to, cause it inevitably ends up all over the map (figuratively & literally).
So, what’s caught your ears this year? For me, I’ve really been enjoying Octo Octa - Where Are We Going?, which is a really excellent electronic album.
Priests - Nothing Feels Natural is also great, mixing D.C. punk with some late-80s Sonic Youth & Remain in Light-ish Talking Heads influence.
And to close it out, I’ll mention Wiley - Godfather, which is a super good album of energetic grime.
